Patient and Family Advisory Council

Giving you a voice

Adirondack Health's Patient and Family Advisory Council seeks to create a patient- and family-centered environment that promotes the best possible medical and emotional outcomes for patients and family members by giving a voice to patients and community members.

The PFAC is comprised of patients, family members, a patient advocate and Adirondack Health staff.  They typically meet once a month for two hours to offer suggestions or hear from Adirondack Health leadership on specific topics of interest.  

PFAC mission and vision

The Patient/Family Advisory Council for Adirondack Health ensures that patients have a voice in their own healthcare journey. We accomplish this by strengthening communication to create a partnership with patients, families and the healthcare team. We deliver the highest standard of safe, comprehensive and compassionate healthcare.
A safe, compassionate, innovative health care community that engages, listens, learns, and works collaboratively with patients and their families.
